Need a minister to lay hands on you but don’t have the time to actually get out of the car and walk into the church? Desperate for some soul-quenching prayer but late for little Billy’s soccer practice? In Fremont, California you can swing by for a drive-thru prayer.
Holy Spirit Church in Fremont, California, lets drivers park in the car park before being blessed by its pastor through their window.The first drive-thru service on November 17 proved so popular it will now run every weekday evening between 5pm and 6pm.
The church had been promoting drive-thru prayer through its newsletter and by word of mouth.
And then parishioner Lalu Paul stood at the busy intersection of Fremont Boulevard and Central Avenue during the Monday evening rush hour waving a sign that read ‘Drive-Thru Prayer.’
Around 35 motorists arrived during the service’s first hour – with one individual even arriving on bike.
And if you want to be baptized, just go through the car wash.
